The Biology Department at Preston Lodge High School has a clear rationale for learning. All our courses are planned to allow students to develop the four capacities of Curriculum for Excellence.

We strive to develop engaging courses which ignite students’ curiosity for learning about the biological world. Our lessons are planned using the school’s six part cycle which places a clear focus on learning. You can get a flavour of our courses by using the links above.

In order to enhance students’ ability to discuss their learning we make use of SOLO Taxonomy. The purpose of this is to support students to achieve a deeper level of learning and understanding. You can download a guide to SOLO Taxonomy here.
